Does anyone know how I could use the keyboard to apply a resolution that I select in the settings menu under display. The reason for this question is that I changed the resolution on my monitor and now the box in the window for displays under settings is out of view and I cannot click it with the mouse. I'm unable to see the entire screen on my computer I only see the top half and some of the right to left.

I am trying to figure out how to have similar behaviour to windows file manager using backspace. When I hit backspace under windows explorer i move one level up in file directory. I cannot find how to have the same in elementary.
